K Health uses artificial intelligence to triage patients in an effort to reduce doctor workload, and cut costs. In 2021, the urgent care platform launched a pediatric program, which gives parents the ability to text with a doctor at any time of day, saving a trip to the doctor’s office, where they could pick up some other illness. Doctors can diagnose and prescribe, sending scripts directly to the pharmacy. It offers the service with per-visit fee of $35 or as part of a monthly package that starts at $49 a month and can include services for adults as well. K Health signed a deal last year to provide care to 80,000 students in Baltimore City Public Schools beginning in May 2021. In addition to caring for kids, the platform is expanding into managing chronic conditions for adults. The company said it had 5 million users, and raised $132 million in 2021 as part of a Series E round, bringing its total funding so far to $271 million.
This year’s health list honors businesses that have kept our country healthy throughout the pandemic. These companies are creating the future today with some of the most inspiring accomplishments of the 21st century. We feel so grateful to be included.
